Re: Profile not being approved

It seems that upwork now never approves profiles from India, other country people when havimg same profile you get them approve but in India only a bot which automatically rejects profile after 24 hours. This is not expected from a global freelancing platform, it can't be called as global platform. Help.

Hello everyone,

I have the same issue. The client asked me to join Upwork and submit the proposal he posted there - but my profile has been declined for two times already. This work is interesting and important for me. He keeps on asking me why I haven't done it yet - I may lose the proposal if I waste more timeSmiley Sad


I have already completed everything I could, can you have a look and give any tips on my profile?

Here's the link -


Thanks a lot!

I have the same problem. I got three times the same type of email, as yours:


The usual email notification:

"Thank you for your interest in joining Upwork. We have reviewed your application to join, and regret to inform you that we are unable to accept your Upwork freelancer registration at this time. Please do not consider this a reflection of your abilities – while we would like to offer every qualified freelancer a spot, admission is highly competitive as Upwork receives more than ...."


I wrote all what I did and I completed all the parts with skills, experiences and some samples of my portfolio.

I have had your same thought: Maybe my account is rejected automatically by automated bot after 24h?

Mine also less than 24h, unfortunately


I checked me too in the "search profile" to find people from my same country with my skills and I haven't found so many pro in my field. 


I'd like to have a help and advice cos I don't know what I can add more than I have already written or added


Many thanks

I have been facing this very problem. I have years of experience as a Content strategist and writer and am doing well on other freelancing platforms. I am not sure why is my profile being rejected repeatedly despite having required relevant experience and skills while much less experienced freelancers are approved on the platform. 


I don't see the content strategizing field overcrowded. Apparently, the profile is being rejected by some automated algorithm. It would be great if there's a way to figure this out.

Same issue here, have already specialised my profile to match a niche and unique skill but just got rejected again.

Is there a way my profile can get looked at properly?

Why isn't my Upwork Profile being approved? What kind of information am I missing? Your guidance to support my issue would be highly appreciated.
